#566 Provenpackager request - kalev
Closed None Opened 9 years ago by kalev.

= Full Name =

Kalev Lember (kalev)

= Qualifications =

My packaging experience started ca. 2004 when we started maintaining a custom Linux distribution for embedded devices. I have been a Linux user since Red Hat Linux 6.2 days and enjoy contributing back. I believe my previous experience helps me produce stable patches and packages for Fedora.

  • 2 years of maintaining packages in Fedora
  • Currently own or co-own 46 packages in Fedora, including several libraries
  • Have completed 24 package reviews and have received positive feedback when helping out other packagers on #fedora-devel IRC channel
  • I am a contributor to a number of open source projects; as a Fedora contributor, I always try to work with upstreams to accept Fedora-related patches

= Rationale =

I would like to be able to rebuild (and fix them up in case of API changes) packages that depend on the libraries I maintain. As a rawhide user, I'd like to be able to do drive-by fixes to packages which need rebuilds or are otherwise obviously broken. I'd also help fixing some FTBFS bugs.

+1 from me. Kalev is very active on irc, as a maintainer...

Mailed to package sponsors for feedback.

A week has passed with all positive response, so this request is approved. ;)

Use your powers for good!
